16 Reasons Why Your Single Years Are The Best Years

Do you wake up in the morning with no fear of missing an anniversary or the birthday of your special someone? Do you sit and beat people at Candy Crush while your friends are out taking forced selfies with their boyfriends/girlfriends? If you have said yes to any of these, you are in this crazy phase of your life called "singledom." Don’t get me wrong, relationships are awesome — but being single has it’s own share of "awesomeness" too!

1. You don’t have to face the awkward show of love.

2. You get to laugh and joke at the PDA of other couples.

Ewww...

3. You don’t have to bear nicknames like this.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F636211294834183735-1243373785_SB3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=923&h=07f96698122a699a1d1124118427baed47178346212c3026e426f764956f8fdf&size=980x&c=783258212 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F636211294834183735-1243373785_SB3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D923%26h%3D07f96698122a699a1d1124118427baed47178346212c3026e426f764956f8fdf%26size%3D980x%26c%3D783258212%22%7D" expand=1]

Moon? Do I look that round and vampire white?

4. You can get piss drunk without answering anyone.

Weeee…. I’m flying.

5. You can watch any movie you want because...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F636211295839641996-1239474935_SB5-B.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=691&h=228059dd357efb744a26a4ba5a64f9fd0161ffe624e3768d8912e5b4499958ba&size=980x&c=2086930006 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F636211295839641996-1239474935_SB5-B.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D691%26h%3D228059dd357efb744a26a4ba5a64f9fd0161ffe624e3768d8912e5b4499958ba%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2086930006%22%7D" expand=1]

...nobody will be complaining about it.

6. You can save money like crazy.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F636211296282460931-319492258_SB6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=982&h=43129c6adae9c33857b071f0240cc1652e65556d4a81bbdd12f665887f87086d&size=980x&c=2002915562 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F636211296282460931-319492258_SB6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D982%26h%3D43129c6adae9c33857b071f0240cc1652e65556d4a81bbdd12f665887f87086d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2002915562%22%7D" expand=1]

No buying fancy gifts and lovey-dovey stuff.

7. You can eat like this.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F6362112969417090011931853434_a2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=889&h=312d391ed4d6addf61b618ae2d416f1098d50821f3303e8ae0fb659f13c1fe8b&size=980x&c=107171710 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F6362112969417090011931853434_a2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D889%26h%3D312d391ed4d6addf61b618ae2d416f1098d50821f3303e8ae0fb659f13c1fe8b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D107171710%22%7D" expand=1]

And be like this: ¯_(ツ)_/¯

8. After a tiring day at work, you don’t have to be glued to your phone for hours.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F636211297780936225-1572230190_a5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=478&h=828a6a8859f27d4c512c27f1c00df08bdfb080b76f4180f0e69af64011bcdf4a&size=980x&c=2039691598 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F636211297780936225-1572230190_a5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D478%26h%3D828a6a8859f27d4c512c27f1c00df08bdfb080b76f4180f0e69af64011bcdf4a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2039691598%22%7D" expand=1]

9. You are now at the consoling end of friends during break-ups.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F636211298781277633-584860995_5b.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=343&h=2543fbbb678a21e7186ad3fbefdad5352ce128ae5a7489960c3a067e709acd7f&size=980x&c=3671666971 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F636211298781277633-584860995_5b.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D343%26h%3D2543fbbb678a21e7186ad3fbefdad5352ce128ae5a7489960c3a067e709acd7f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3671666971%22%7D" expand=1]

Not the other way round.

10. You don’t have to remember dates for your anniversary, first kiss, first this, first that.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F6362114352134844871118576190_a3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=430&h=9d85446ee146a1b9375eded8f7ac3ee2b7c8b85792211c6aecef89b7b551f1bb&size=980x&c=1148612115 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F6362114352134844871118576190_a3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D430%26h%3D9d85446ee146a1b9375eded8f7ac3ee2b7c8b85792211c6aecef89b7b551f1bb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1148612115%22%7D" expand=1]

Or buy gifts for those special days.

11. You can eat your food without sharing.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F636211435892243428709203934_SB12.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=952&h=1d8819d876a8124ba89dcde48ed19735a1fa545f16d2a852427e9ed5db7f4be9&size=980x&c=3708019273 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F636211435892243428709203934_SB12.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D952%26h%3D1d8819d876a8124ba89dcde48ed19735a1fa545f16d2a852427e9ed5db7f4be9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3708019273%22%7D" expand=1]

And making the other person believe how genuinely nice and polite you are.

12. You enjoy life without having an attention-seeking baby (read: your partner) hovering around you or calling you incessantly.

13. You can check out and meet new people.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F6362114368141491562141307498_SB15.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=6&h=23ec10612d2f55ad210d73530b6624b962a6020de1347b7ee0f6c42cfd767307&size=980x&c=2690870726 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F6362114368141491562141307498_SB15.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D6%26h%3D23ec10612d2f55ad210d73530b6624b962a6020de1347b7ee0f6c42cfd767307%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2690870726%22%7D" expand=1]

And the good news is you can even ask them out on a date if you want to!

14. You can plan some alone time things for yourself without being answerable to anyone.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F27%2F636211437982875462-1066082677_a6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=492&h=53543fccaaaf8c6bfd9ec8f8ec122eb8148059349bb7116c604fef383c0fe6f0&size=980x&c=42608591 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F27%252F636211437982875462-1066082677_a6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D492%26h%3D53543fccaaaf8c6bfd9ec8f8ec122eb8148059349bb7116c604fef383c0fe6f0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D42608591%22%7D" expand=1]

Probably take that solo trip that you never could.

15. You have more time for your parents.

… and friends.

16. But the best thing is that you get to be a free soul and enjoy the hell out of your life until you do meet that special someone.

Yes, I'm single and you'll have to be AMAZING to change that!!!!!

So, keep calm and enjoy singledom. 😀

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

Rich Schultz/Getty Images

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
